TOMMIE TINKER

Randall's Agent


Tommie Tinker is very excited and thankful to have lent his vocal talents to this extraordinary cinematic experience.  This is his first film project - most of his experience has been on the stage. He joins us after recently completing acting classes with David Dean Bottrell in Hollywood, CA where he learned the value of listening and honestly responding accordingly.  His last stage experience was with The Varmits Improv Group on the Queen Mary and also as a stage-reader for the Long Beach Playhouse for their Original Work Festival.  He has been lucky enough to be involved in some wonderful stage performances including The Glass Menagerie, Lend Me a Tenor, Gypsy, Lil' Abner and Dearly Departed.
